The liid cycle in pictures, which 
was freely predicted wheit Shirley

far away &■ ever. Odds are against 
it ever happening. 

Over a period of 15 years only 
thre0' iuves have had their names

tube of Otm irreatneiM.' Mrst ' to 
scale the heights was Jackie Coo- 
gan. There was every reason then 
to believe that an era of .short pants 
and golden curls had arriyod, but 
nothing <»me of it until llvl^eftriiii 
later When Jackie Cooper graduated 
from Our Gang to full length flick- 
ers. Started anotlier trek to Cin- 
ema City by fond mamas and pre- 
cocious kiddies and history repeated 
itselfv Now Ju ilie mi^t jrf a^Shir-

.nil one way. 

This pouring in of the prodigies 
is not entirely propelled by an 111

of the tots are behg groomed in

The second week (last), with better . 
weather, came close to equaling the 
first seven days, house getting $32,- i 
500. while this week (third* takings 
are estimated at $28,000. The Riv Is ' 
doins excellent business around the 
$30,000 mark, considering its ca- 
pacity, regardless of what the pic- ■ 
ture Is. 'Rothschild' in John 
Wright's opinion would be a cinch 
for six weeks, but It can't remain 
on the premises that long, becau.se 
it is delaying other United Artlats 
pictures awaiting first run here, in- 
cluding 'Bulldog Drummond Strikes 
Back,' ne*t on schedule. As result : 
'Rothschild' goes after four weeks. 

'Here Comes Navy* has not been . '

A new low is in prospect for the

OtaahaV Car Strike 
Over, Biz Should Be 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 

Om.'iha, Aug. 6. 
<?ity's second street-car strike 
this year ended Tuesday (31) after 
the public had gone five d.ays with- 
out the utility's transportation. 
9his one lasted a day longer than 

Kvlous ftrike and accomplished

Urst strike. 

Kstimated that bis was affected 
from 10-30%. This is not what was 
actually cut off the usual grosses 
but what might have been realized 
over the avcraRC take but wasn't 
t>ecause of the strike. Biz was good 
•II around and might have been 
oxhilarating except for the strike. 

New shows will likely bring the- 
atre row back to its average self 
after the splurgy weeks Just past.

Estimates for This Week 

Orpheum (Ulank) (2,076; 25-40)— 
'tJrand Canaiy' (Fqx) and 'Kiss and

arouhd that class, even op a little 
due to decrease In opposlsh, $7,300.

heavier without strike. jk,ft «fk|MNlNtl

Kansas- City, Aug. 6. 
Loew's Midland with Jean Har- 
Idw, Kan.sas City's best known 
blonde, in 'The Girl from Missouri,' 
her home state, will lead all comers 
in grosses. Picture opened strong 
Friday with long lines In front of 
the box oincc and held nicely over 
the_Saturday shows. Indications are 
for one of the best weeks for pome 
time. 

Last week was pretty draggy all 
around. The terrific hc.at continued 
and is still hanging on and is com- 
mencing to really hurt. Reports from 
the surrounding territory tell of 
crops destroyed .and live stock dying 
for want of water, which Is not 
good for the show business. 
Estimates for Thi« Wssk

bier dfa«r te 'Bandy AiidyV which is 
in iti oeeoiid week at we Apollo and 
still strbnK^ enough to warrant an- 
other week or tWo before it finally 
bows out. The second week will 
reach a figure of $6,000 if the pres- 
ent pace keeps up, and th<at on top 
of an $8,500 first week is sensational 
for the small 1,100-seater. Seven 
shows a day Is turning the trick, 
however. 

•Here Comes the Navy' at the 
Circle Is running well In second 
place with a take of $5,000 showing 
up, and 'Girl From Missouri' is next 
in line with a gross of $4,400 at 
Loew's Palace. 'Cockeyed Cavaliers' 
is trailing with no more than $3,800 
in sight of the Xyric. 

Estimate* for tho W«ek 
Apollo (Fourth Ave.) (1.100; 25- 
40)— 'Handy Andy' (Fox) (2nd 
week). Very big at $6,000. Last 
week In Its opening stanza the pic- 
ture grossed $8,500, which Is up in 
the roo<M('d4broal|j|ii: the 
house. 

Circle (Katx-Feld) (2,600; 25-40).

(for live days) 1 Give My Love* (U)

good but not sensational at 15,500.

tha.;Pi;c>d.ucer dusted .oft one. of the 
flrikt Ijtaorge KaUfnian-ifl^ Con- 
nelly ■ collaborations, produced on 
Broadway about 12 years ago. As 
a stages play the fable had 4 Ane 
sense of gusto, laughs that cas 
oaded.'.o.vfr ona another, a satiric 
bita tiii«t{]tldded the foibles of modv 
em business with no punches pulled: 
and the sprightly, hand of Helen 
Hayes to guide the role of Elsie 
Beabe. Screen version of the same 
jscHpt .liiaa Mt Mily removOd movt of 
tha verve, pace and blta, but loaded 
Itself down w^th a couple of ihal 
a)^tt«sMs of nilaoajiiftlng. 

Aa WtneTf <3eorge Bancroft does a 
capable bit of trouptng, but It will 
likely go against the average fan's 
grain to find this two-fisted, sten- 
torian socker so far removed from 
original screen typing. Here he's 
a stumbling, stuttering, thick-witted 
Casper Milquetoast, turning his 
other cheek to tho puny guy and 
the puppet of a wife who harbors 
big ideas for him. It's a charac 
terization that anything but jells. 
Another wcakie instance of role 
designation is that of Frances 
Fuller as Elsie. Hers Is cute stuff, 
but tho solid substance that actu- 
ates the pushitnt and the guiding 
spirit is lackUii!, ' , -

ih tha early part of the narrative 
plus the contributiPn of George Bar 
bier in a role that Is right up his 
alley. Rest of the cast Is pretty 
much of the on and off category. 

Premise upon which this whimsy 
Is founded should tickle the egos of 
tho ni.arried women. Both Bancroft 
an<l Barbier. the former as a truck 
driver and tho latter as the small- 
town piano manufacturer and Ban- 
croft's boss, persist in propounding 
tho philosophy that woman's, place 
is in the kitchen and she should be 
kept from interfering. In business, 
while every successful inova made 
by tho males has th^ f0mme ^finger 
behind It. i Odee.

Con^p|i6f^^"''^il(S|^ eetnhg at 
pre"BeHrineans that the hew selling 
season won't get started in towns 
before m.jybe Sept. 15 or October. 
In the past the selling season has 
been in full swijng by .!ji«ili';;^li and 
Aug, 1. In the pj^et yearii there has 
been much talk among distributors 
of delaying the sellinff Hea.son until 
the fall, under the contention that 
summer is a tough time to try to 
sell product, Juat wheii business is 
at its worst. BiJt distributors never 
got around to that delayed selling 
becau.se of tiie fear of competing 
firms jumping in ahead of them. 

This year jthe selling season is 
being del&yed nel^' by any sales pol- 
icy on the part of the distributors 
but because of the chaotic condi- 
tions in towns due to unfinished 
code and zoning business, pending

until R&K deals are .set it's impos-

ROXY, N. Y. 

The Roxy is in for a happy ses- 
sion again. "Will Rogers in 'Handy 
Andy' (Fox) was dragging 'em in 
opening day to such a healthy clip 
that iopes were up for the final 
show. The management didn't 
bother much with the stage 4how. 

At that It's not too ba^ a gotilash, 

as those things go at the Roxy. It's 

trimmed down to 60 minutes, which 
is mighty short In this here the- 
atre. But even so house manages 
to let every thtiiig have a padded ap- 
peitraneA Thore's only one set, a 
heavy MMit scelle with the band on 
ahi upper 4<t<;k anil the proceedings

quartet sings and dances, doing a 
bit too much of both. Boys arc 
clever and ^capable but wear out 
their .w«}0(|iii;v|V.:lllWAptfMi|^ 
more. " " 

There's a production number 
next: one of those mermaid thiiiga. 
A curtain is let down In front of the 
set for the purpose and the stage 
dimmed, which does away with the 
need for another set or drop. Gae 
Fester girls, of course, are the mer- 
maids. They writhe around a bit, 
then prance around In an old fash- 
ioned but sulflciently colorful man- 
ner. From offstage the line of boys, 
eight, sing the melody and not too 
badly. 

It's a natural froin there for 
Wesley Eddy to go into Handalay^' 
which he does, the male chorus 
coming on stage to join him for the 
chorus and tO continue for one 
number on tkeir own.

Lino is back for a very cute 
pirate number, which ends by 
bringing on Alyce Cerf, a fast acro- 
batic dancer. And that's the end 
of the stage show. 

There's a newsreel, a Mickey 
Mouse and a two-reeler to fill in, 
so that the customers can get their

CpLlSigUM, MADRID 

Madrid, July 2^. 

Vaiideville Is staging a comeback 
in Madrid. Maestro Jacinto tSuer- 
ren< and Junnlto Carcello get the 
credit for converting tho Coliseum 
into the biggest moneymaking 
house— legit or pic— in town, despite 
the fact that it lacks a cooling sys- 
tem and the summer heat is nick- 
ing theatre biz generally.

QIRIENTAL, CHI 

Chicago, Aug, S. 
Balaban and Ka^ tos apparently 

decided that a theatre as big as the 
Oriental might luaye a totter chance 
for a atettlifiKr show 

by eliminating many of the talking 
acts and relying more on straight 
isigiii Ontei^talhinont. Less use of 

the microphone seems to reduce the 
feeling of vastness one gets, no 
matter wkerf to Mts la tlio theatre. 

There wasn't a ainile aot .that 
only talked at the audleiiee. All 
danced, sang or did some panto- 
mime clowning, getting laughs with 
direct business. King's Jesters did 
it with their comedy warbling. Hap 
Hazard did it in his naturally funny 
way of keeping up a flow of chat- 
ter while performing. Then there 
was the top clowning of Lorraine 
and Digsby wabbly dancing, get- 
ting laughs and applause that gags 
haven't been mOH to; dt^iNr tore in 
some time. 

Marcolle Williams and Coinp«,ny 
opened with five minutes of body 
tossing, which looked good. It was 
straight sight, so that i^vch those 
back in the tolcony couldn't hiisa 
any of the turns. Kiriig's Jesters 
followed with ttoir humorous 
cro<^ihg, drawing some oxtra ap- 
proval f oiP their 151d Toil Ever' Se« 
a Dream Walkiiiir?' 

Hap Tfa7.ird did his regular mix- 
ture of tiprht rope stimts and gags. 
Rut the Iloosler lad didn't have to 
be heard to be laughed at because 
he and hi?? femmjO partner go over 
well witlumt that. 

Starting with the Four Frank:--, 
there followed some speed leg toss- 
ing and tap dancing that woupd up 
only with tto ctto^^|P#'t<orfiato

Such is the oliange thiM liito coihc 
over this theatre and the institution 
of vaudeville In the past several 
years that, without intentional sar- 
casm, the reaction of a professional 
vaudeville-goer to a good bill Is one 
that can only be expressed in terms 
of pleased but incredulous surprise.

were the Carr l?ros., hand-to-hand

of knockabout comedy; Darlene

there's a smart dance flash, Jeanne

deal can he done with n structure 
not more than three or four feet tall 
extending from the bottom of the 
niartiuee in an upward direction. 

For 'We're Not Dressing," for in- 
stance, a strip of sand and grass 
can be painted to cover the mar(tuee 
sides, with palm trees extending 
abov# as cutouts. A castle front 
can be supplied for. 'Queen Chris- 
tina.' and the structure can be built 
into a do^k end for 'Waterfront.' No 
More Wwhen' and aimllar seafaring 
pictures. I.ettering can be laid in 
to suit, and the result will be better 
tlian adherence to the formula style. 

The structure should be built so 
that it .can be stored and repainted 
for another picture; anything .stand- 
ing above the common level being 
on separate pieces. Used every six 
or eight weeks, tt will give an 
tlfeiy new <tiap«9t to the houiffS

When a iiieture falls to carry its 
own exploitation suggestions, and 
th<»^ bid be^h fflLtra to fUiMitMii,' It's 
a good idea to have some of the old 
standards to fa}l back on. For in- 
stance, L.le'#llyn'« " one-piece coat 
and suit hanger is hew again. It's 
advertisedy'that one-piece hangers 
will be given on a ce;rtain ^veiling,

Another Is a paster printed with 
the advertisement for a show a 
week or two ahead. It is enclosed 
in an envelope headed 'Fidelity 
Test.' Instructions tell the receiver 
to paste it to the mirror. If it 
eh injjes color 'the hoy friend Is un- 
faithful. Ariottjher on the s.anie lines 
is the emotif)n test for a thriller. 
I'rinted uj) for the i)icture, but with 
a white si».jce or design in the cen- 
ter. Held in both hands for one 
minute by the clock. If the bare 
space does not turn red, the tester 
is .aide to see the picture advertised 
without d.anger of .a collapse. 

All childish stuff, but |t^^^ 
hold amazingly well. ' ' •. > , ;

Issy RaiiikBDOH! reopened his 
Hipp, country's most successful in- 
die-operated vaudfllmer, last Thurs- 
day night after a nine-week hiatus 
for inside 'n' out rehabilitation. Ex- 
terior has been scrubbed and 
shincd; within new drapes, lamps, 
chairs, carpets, traveler and stage 
tlooring have been installed. Al- 
together represents an outlay of 
.iround |45,000 of the $75,000 profited 
by theatre last season. 

It's highly problematical whether 
the Hipp will experience a repe- 
tition this season of the suc- 
cess of last. Burg's other vaud- 
nimer, Loew's Century, which has 
been hedttedly rivaled, and in many 
instancea efiminled, by the Hipp for 
the past tliirtto irears. has now A

and has since relinquished to WB's 
solo care. That angle w.as notice- 
able from mid-April on, at which 
time Loew gave up the Stanley and 
impregnated self and all-first-run 
interests at the C<'ntury. Biz at the

Steuer noted fHatlhe" libndholders ^ 
sued on the ground that acts of the

by Chase the decision went Into the 
question of whether the transaction ' ■ 
was a violation of the agreement in. i 
the indenture. Jtistlee Steuer rulMndui 
th%t 'If It la, thwe can be no dispute ' 
that the defendant violated a duty 
to the bondholders in participating , 
In an act which It undertook to pre* ' 
vent the corporation from doing.' 

Chase Bank had contended that 
the demand notea were paid by the 
110,000,000 and hence that there was* 
no outstanding indebtedness for the 
year. The $10,000,000 note was taken 
in return for oash. a^yancep and v«

Pitkin is trying through his radio 
prograins to bring opportunity into

' There ia a political motivation 
that finds an echo in NRA Ideals 
that also figures in the possible Ro- 
tary deal. Rotary has a profound 
wtph for the prMaiif domocratlc 
type of AmertctUi goVernbient to 
hold ita bwh ajirainst any possible 
contingency, however remote at tlio 
moment, of fascism, communism' or 
other dictatorships. But Rotary has 
realiaod tk9$ .4^t<^t|lfj| in Eurbpo 
have gottiett Wiir "iliipport and 
storm troopers largely from among 
the jobless, unadjusted and dis- 
satisfied youth. Rotary fears that 
permanent bad luck and discour- 
agement oif millfoha of irouhgr folk 
in the U.i3.A. might spawn the be- 
ginnings of a trust in violent po- 
litical methods. 

Pitkin has been on CBS about 
five weeka and hap attrabt 
of attention. Some of it has not 
been entirely f avor able. Efipeclally 
controversial has been his constant 
harping on the need for opening in-

WEAF, New York 

Laughing, and with every evi- 
dence Of high relish, at tltelr own 
stuff Landt Trio and White, so far 
as their comedy o^OTtf go, don't 
click. It's prettjr blali gab with one 
of the boxf Msuming a falsetto to 
Impersonate a itejrthical Minnie, 
proprtetreM of i hash liotiie where 
the others, Parmeiee ekbbtes, 
stop for victuals. 

When they sing the act Is safe. 
More than that. They're very good. 
But a gift for comedy seems not 
theirs. Still If they would stop 
laughing so annoyingly at their own 
gags tha j ift i<idye ai e * t w^ifbt be 

high. 

Parmelee's spiel for the nice, cool, 
comfortable, dependable cabs sounds 
oddly like the radio ballyhoo for 
things to eat or things to clean 
teeth with. Which Is an idea of 
the lack of ideas In radio. Hardly 
one intelligent reason was advanced 
as to why . a would-be passenger 
should look to see If the hack be- 
longed to. a certain fleet. While the 
stressing of the name Parmelee has,

In the •Fiotsnm'^ series. Smith Is 
more than passively satisfactory in 
his histrionic personation. But he 
never makes his character appeal, 
for the basic reason it's a negative 
personality. If he endows the 42d 
street and Broadway nickel-and- 
dlmer with any more sympathy, it 
would be a libel on the clan. Pre- 
sented aa is. he^ not -!ikimmm '-4mr-

It's difficult, therefore, to accept 
him in any light. The routine he 
hands out the old lady; then the 
.spiel to the war padre who catches 
him in a lie; and the rest of It 
paints the panhandler for what he 
is — a worthless sponger. 

And not even Smith's appealing 
George M. Cohanesque delivery can 
offset that. HenoO the f utuipe of the

Miais J3u Fayc is essentially aii 
acrobatic dancer, but she adds much 
to the technl<)ue possessed in that 
line. In her first single she works 
taps into acrobatics, cleverly beat- 
ing a tattoo with hands and feet 
wliiK> in split and other aero posi- 
tions. In her other number Miss 
Du Kayo <l.>es a slow acrobatic spe- 
cialty winch includes much that is 
both clever and new. At first she 
moves around ingeniously In a high- 
kicking po.stuie, keeping one foot 
always in t tie air, the other on the 
0001*. Toward the et^d there are 
somo roll -overs without jve handi 
touching the floor at all.

time than that to handle a stage 
show, and T eatirlot afford an over-

to $300 a week for six men at from 
44 to 48 hours, but they also refused 
that. They insisted on seven men 
for $400.' ^'P'''-

Parallel Thinking 

Judge "Woolsey also dwelt upon 
coincidence of two sets of mtdcrn 
writer^ possibly paralleling their 
theuflita, meaning the suing Bheir 
don>Barncs team as compared to the 
scenarists who ultimately adapted 
'Letty* from the sources of the Mar- 
garet Smith which are . reputedly 
public pr bpet t y*;,-'. ' ■':-:y'-^'^ 

For fllm-legit literary record, this 
portion of Judge Woolsey's lengthy 
opinion may serve as precedent in 
other casc;s, aa he <>bseryes: 

A booik ef pla!y< «f4tl«h eonlaine

may be'copyrifrhted because it is 
an entire thing whicli, unider the 
statute,- nmjr not be ' copl'i^ in.

original cannot otherwise be pro- 
tected. But the securing of a 
copyright Is a purely nieichaiitcal 
matter involYing the t»p«^0l>iKiit 
with the statute as' iiio ^^^i^^ 
of copies of the work for wnH^ ;. 
copyright is sought. ^ 

when a book is offered for copy- 
right, study any prior art, as does 
the I'atont Office when a patent 
is sought. It grants the copy- 
l«iiiV'>liNHN^ the lirbteetlon 
of the law not only over the copy- 
righted book as an entirety, but 
o\er the original content of the 
book. It is then left to the courts, 
If llUgatl<»n':««»tiei». te^ what 
that orlgln.al content Is, and to de- 
fine the zone In which the copy- 
right owner is protected.

Ideas Net Protected 

Ideas, of course, arc not pro- 
tected by CWyrlght, and, cf nse- 
qucntly, the Ipialntift's theme, 
that Is the baste idea of their play 
would not have been protected, 
quit© irrespective ot the fact that 
it was b^sed on the trial (of 
Madeline Smith) which was In 
the public domain. 

Obviously, the iocalc of the plot 
cannot be protected by copyright. 
A«:':iiiM'''.l)My^.^ta^ 'of

a copyright, but he cannot eoit)y-

in truef of course, of an author

led to the acquittal of the berotne 
in the play , and to the Pistrlct

had some time to spend looking

to get out a little and meet some 
new people, even though It was 

tough to lose that five thousand

^The la golni^^ along; how 

long, nobody can tell yet. A lot 
of concessionaires are still full of 
hope and say that it isn't fair to 
make IIP their minde yet how 
it's geinr to turti e^nt ' 'nm: aay, 
let's wait until lAbor Day before 
we decide. I should think, Benny, 
that they will be able to tell by

a'iiucitie«i-«irAi^^ 'v--^-: 

I did meet one conceMlo|.<inirher 
whc is very happy. He sayii With a 
couple of more good Sundays he 
might get off the nut, as, they say 
In show business, which iaiiipg. he 
won't lose much inoney. 

Everybody in the Fair Is very 
kind to me, even though they are 
a bit Jealous that I am makintr 
money. They let me in the villages

Dear £enny: 

I stIH wo^ldn^t advtiMB yott to

Besides, I am the big attraction 
here and you know me from the 
Old iBajni jth^ii .1 m;!: .ll«^^ to

I have been gt;tting a lot of of- 
fers for personal appearances in 
vaudeville. vOf course. m|»«t , of 
them aril froni those mh^RMip^ 
street agents, so what can a real 
artist expect. I have been thinking 
.about it and I am trying to build 
an act ao that the public caii really 
appreciate my art from the audi- 
ence, because after all Benny I 
don't dance or sing. Just me and 
my pink pillow. 

Pne - writer came to me with a 
preWy^-:-.g^6otf 'Aiea 'of' aet'' that 

wciuld bring out my talent in the 
l»est way. He w.ants to have a 
faMow or something which makes 
a very pretty picture. Of course, 
he waa -goiiiv to haye other people 
la the case but that Is >ttst to flil 
in the time until I come on. But 
this writer wants some money In 
advance, so it looks like the whole 
deal; Is ''.off;'.'.
